Do a Day: How to Live in the Present with Bryan Falchuk


Today’s show is all about how to live in the present. We always hear people talking about it, but how exactly is it done?

Most of us hold onto shame, guilt, and feelings of unworthiness from yesterday. At the same time, we feel constant anxiety when we think about what tomorrow might bring. This ruins any chance of making today a great day and keeps us in a state of fear that negatively effects our relationships at home and at work.

Bryan Falchuk is a life coach, TEDx speaker, and the bestselling author of Do a Day: How to Live a Better Life Every Day. He’s going to give us a formula to help us live in the present moment by confronting our past and removing anxiety about the future. Today is a new day. Go out and do it!

If you have one foot in the past and one foot in the future, you’re pissing on the present.

    • Look at your life – Where do you want it to be? What is serving you, what is not? Deal with your issues, past and future.
    • Make a plan for today – How are you going to react? What will you do to change the thoughts and habits that are not serving you?
  • The ongoing process of Do a Day

What Happened When My Family Gave Up Screen Time for 40 Days

What Happened When My Family Gave Up Screen Time for 40 Days

Electronic devices are a part of our lives now. Can you imagine giving them up? Would your kids survive without their phones, tablets, and video games? Listen to what happened to my family when we gave up our screen time for 40 days!


My family is Catholic and for Lent this year, my nine-year-old decided to give up screen time. That means no Playstation, no Wii no TV, no iPad. Our whole family was so inspired by his sacrifice, we all gave up our screens and it has changed our lives in amazing ways. We don’t sit around watching TV anymore. It forces us to go outside and play basketball or football. No one is looking at their phones. We even play board games. We huddle together and read books. Now that we’ve given up our screens, we really don’t want them back.

Would you take the no screen time challenge? Let us know if you do and share your experience in the Dad’s Edge Facebook Group.

One Simple Mind Hack To Get Your Mind Off Work

As all of you regular listeners know, 5 minute Thursdays are never five minutes. We are finally switching the name. Welcome to Thursday Throwdown! On this episode I’ll be revealing one simple mind hack so you can get your mind off work and be mentally present with your family.

On last week’s episode with Jim Sheils, we talked about how to magnify your presence with you kids by carving out 4 hours every 90 days to be together one-on-one without distractions. This is a game-changing practice for fathers and their kids, but what about in the ordinary evenings after work or on the weekends? What can we do to get our mind off work and focus on our kids every day?

Being present is a struggle for most men. We are Type-A personalities who were wired to compete, hunt, and multi-task. We’re always thinking about the next goal to accomplish or the next problem to be solved. When we’re our around kids, it’s hard for us to shut the rest of the world down and keep our mind from wandering.

Ryan Michler, the creator of Order of Man, gave me a crystal clear answer. Since dads are always focusing on our next big goal, make the goal being present with your child.

BE THERE

Mentally, physically, and emotionally.

That is the goal right now. That is what we’re trying to conquer.
